Loving someone and being loved by someone is an awesome feeling! And there are many ways to show love towards one another, like buying gifts, spending time and doing things together. Then there’s physical affection, intimacy of love towards another.
There’s nothing wrong with showing love through intimacy. But, there’s a level of intimacy for those who are married, and those who are not. For those who are married, your body belongs to your spouse, and should only be given to your spouse. For those who are single, your body belongs to God, until you are married. Therefore, you should abstain from having sex.
It is not God’s will for you to share of your body with no one, until you are married. Doing so before marriage, is a sin.
There are very few who heed to the word of God to abstain from sex, to wait for God. And those who do wait, are rewarded.
I Corinthians 6:18-19 (KJV) – flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
I Corinthians 7:2 (KJV) – nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
I Corinthians 7:4 (KJV) – the wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
I Thessalonians 4:3 (KJV) – for this is the will of God, even your sanctification , that ye should abstain from formication.
II Samuel 22:21 (KJV) – the Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.
